Module 06 Personal Behavioral Health
As a behavioral health student, you should now have a good understanding of the behaviors that are most indicative of psychological and physical well-being. However, despite recognizing the best behaviors, sometimes it’s difficult to choose that path.
Using your own human experience, select a personal health behavior that you would like to change (e.g., smoking, drinking, exercise, etc.). Then, according to the principles and ideas outlined in the Module, explain how you might be able to change the behavior. Even though this assignment is focused on personal experience, please avoid using anecdotal knowledge or inserting personal opinions into your assignment. Instead, be sure to rely on evidence and data to support your work. A minimum of 2 scholarly references is required.
In a 3-4 page paper, written in APA format using proper spelling/grammar, address the following:
Describe the 8 dimensions of wellness.
Choose 1 of the 8 dimensions that you would like to improve, then evaluate your behaviors in that dimension.
Decide on a specific behavior from within your chosen dimension and discuss how the behavior affects your personal health and wellness.
Explain how you could change the behavior based on the 5 stages of behavioral change.
